Therapy Dog Brings Smiles To Children

by Jacqueline Whitmore

In September of 2008, Bryan Townsend and his intelligent pup Trigger joined forces to contribute to local area hospitals’ Animal Assisted program, which gives children the opportunity to interact with a friendly pet during their time at the hospital. After a few visits, Bryan realized the positive impact a simple visit from a dog like Trigger could have on these children undergoing therapy.

As a result, he has created an additional charitable program called “Trigger’s Toys”. As a therapy dog owner, I absolutely love this month’s inspirational video!
